Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity

The first place to lay my head was the premier golf resort in Gran Canaria, Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity. This secluded mountain golf resort sits a 15-minute transfer inland from the busier coastal resorts of Maspalomas and Meloneras, with stunning views, set against the striking volcanic landscape. This is the perfect golf resort for couples, with spacious, modern designed rooms set over 11 floors in the hotel. Once in resort, you are set for your stay, a great choice of pools set across the different levels, including an infinity pool on the 11th floor, with its own bar (my personal favourite). 

Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity Offers
Hotel:

Generously sized rooms will have you never wanting to leave your chambers, though with an abundance of free activities and experiences, like yoga, aquafit, meditation, water aerobics, and of course golf! Breakfast is a delight, served buffet style, with endless options for choosing. The freshest fruit and pastries were hard to resist.

Golf:

Currently 27 holes of championship golf are on offer at Salobre, with 18 at the original Old Course, and a selection of 9 holes from the New Course. This allows for different 18-hole combinations during your stay, with a great mix of holes to be found throughout. Buggies are mandatory on the New Course, with drastic changes in elevations and terrain that will test your driving off the tee and in the golf cart!

Seaside Collection

The second stint of my Gran Canaria trip was staying in the 5-star Seaside Palm Beach, part of the Seaside Collection. This is set in amongst a group or mature palm trees (the clue is in the name), ensuring a very relaxed and serene environment, located only a short 200 yard walk from the beach of Playa de Maspalomas. 
There a 3 hotel options with Seaside Collection in Gran Canaria; Seaside Palm Beach, the ultra-luxurious Seaside Grand Residencia (member of The Leading Hotels of the World) close by and the 4-star Seaside Sandy Beach in Playa del Ingles. Each offers fantastic dining options in resort, with Sandy Beach and Palm Beach offering all inclusive, along with being in great proximity to some other local eateries.

Lopesan Resorts

A formidable favourite of GolfKings clientele, Lopesan Resorts and Hotels offer fantastic 5-star properties in the Meloneras area, with unrivalled access to 3 golf courses on the island of Gran Canaria. I visited the largest of the 3 hotels that we feature, Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort, Spa and Casino, which was refurbished in 2020 has a palatial feel from the second you step into the foyer. It is a hotel suitable for all types of golfing groups, whether you are a larger group, looking for plenty of space and access to a number of dining options, or a golfing couple who wish to opt for the “Unique Club” option, with priority check-in & out, granting access to a la carte breakfast at Toscana and using the Ladon pool and bar as your secret retreat.

Anfi Tauro Golf:

Another golf course played up in the valleys and through the volcanic ravines, made for some spectacular tee shots and approaches to the greens. A golf course that is a joy to play and has you hitting lots of different clubs from different yardages. Very undulating in places, so the compulsory buggy is appreciated. Definitely in the running for the best golf course in the Canary Islands.

Meloneras Golf by Lopesan:

Probably the best presented golf course that I came across during my trip, Meloneras Golf was as fair a test, as it was enjoyable. Some tremendous short par 3’s to play over water and with some stunning backdrops down to the Atlantic Ocean too. The par 4s and 5s are not to be forgotten either, with some daunting tee shots over cliffs and ravines to find the fairways and the best angles into the greens. A definite must play for anyone looking to play golf in Gran Canaria.

Maspalomas Golf:

The closest golf course to all the hotels that I visited in the area, Maspalomas Golf is a treat on the feet, played over a very level landscape, with few elevation changes. It can be walked, though opting for a buggy in the July heat was the smart move. Lots of tree lined fairways, that are still generous in size, though taper in as the holes progress, meaning anyone brave enough to hit driver needs to be accurate. I really enjoyed the round of golf here, it was a very relaxed atmosphere and the golf course offers up some great birdie chances.

Real Club de Golf de Las Palmas (Bandama Golf):

Located about 1 hour from Maspalomas, you are treated to the jaw-dropping drive up to the golf course, and then you are treated to the views back down. Sometimes referred to as Bandama Golf, the name of the Volcano that it is perched on the edge of (Caldera de Bandama), it is the oldest golf course in Spain and it is very proud to name Rafa Carbrera-Belo is a member. The course is quirky in design, which lends itself to lots of fun shot making.
